Congratulations on the post count.

I think you’re doing a great thing for Lumberjocks. When I signed up, I got messages on my profile welcoming me. This surprised me and I thought it was a robot, but it really was a user being friendly. I’ve never experienced an online forum welcome before and I’ve accounts on many different forums.
